More than a decade ago, record-setting free diver Francisco “Pipin” Ferreras of North Bay Village lost his wife, Audrey Mestre, when she drowned attempting to exceed his world depth mark in a plunge to 561 feet off the Dominican Republic. […]
Ferreras, now 51, retired from competitive diving after his wife’s death. He dissolved his company, the International Association of Free Divers, and did some photography and promotions work.
But now he is announcing a comeback: an attempt in 2014 to break the “no-limits” world record of 702 feet set by Austria’s Herbert Nitsch in 2007 off Greece.
